A question in relation to Garlic Jr. Saga

Hello everyone,,

This has been bothering me for awhile now...

So we know that when Kami had to disperse the Sacred Water around the Earth, he had to use the four winds that met at the bottom of the lookout in order to get it around fast enough. But, on his way there, the past guardian intercepted him and tried to destroy him because Kami was not supposed to be there.

And then later on, Kami gives up being Guardian, but he doesn't do so by death, he does so by fusing with Piccolo.

So, hypothetically, if Dende had to use the four winds, would he have to get past our Kami or the past guardian? Which also asks, what happened to the past guardian? (did he die to get in there or does the spirit remain after relinquishing the role...?)

It's a weird question, but it's been bothering me.
